Supposedly, one must speak English to pass the US citizenship test. Census is toget a count for district representation. So we need a US Representative in districts where they do NOT speak English so we can distribute our taxpayer $$ to them easier, faster and not miss anybody. Right ! I certainly want to make it easier.
